Re: (IAAC) Obj: NGC 2362 - Inst: 12.5" Binocular telescope
I wrote a little test program which asks for mm, dd, yyyy and yields the
correct dtos date. E.g., when I entered 02/12/2000, I got 20000212 -- this
would sort correctly. However, when I gave it 01/01/0000, I got 19000101.
So, the dtos function works fine if given correct input. The question now
occurs to me: what is stored in fu_date? Does it contain a 4-digit year?
